The “Need To Read” post is always the first item published on the MoJo blog. It’s a daily recap of the news people are talking about (or should be). I’ve previously considered making the list a tremendous honor and have noted it here on Hiar Learning.
Today I was given an even bigger honor: I am now in charge of compiling the morning’s must-reads. As excited as I am about the opportunity to shape the daily dialogue at Mother Jones, I will no longer be noting when I write a “Need To Read” post or–for obvious reasons–when my pieces are included on the list.
In addition to “Need To Read,” I’m also taking responsibility for MoJo’s “We’re Still at War Photo of the Day.” Taken from the armed services’ photo feeds, the war photo is a daily reminder that American lives are still at risk around the globe. Below is the first picture I selected.
